I have created a folder outside of my htdocs directory as a means of adding extra security for downloadable digital goods to be sold from within a Magento storefront; so my question is: what permissions should I set for this non-htdocs directory ("digitalgoods")?
[parent]/htdocs apache:apache [parent]/digitalgoods apache:apache
I currently have the "digitalgoods" folder set to 770. Does the PUBLIC need read or execute permissions to this folder if the web application will be pulling and serving these files via unique links??
